What started out as an unattainable dream-to construct a café that employs women recovering from prostitution and addiction-is assisting to fuel an astonishing motion to deliver freedom and fair wages to females producers throughout the world in which tea and trafficking are linked by oppression and the opiate wars. Becca Stevens started out the Thistle Stop Café to empower women survivors. But when she found a connection between café staff and tea laborers overseas, she embarked on a worldwide mission referred to as \"Shared Trade\" to enhance the worth of females survivors and producers across the globe. As she recounts the victories and unexpected problems of developing the café, Becca also sweeps the reader into the planet of tea, exactly where timeless rituals transport to an era of elegance and the challenging truths about tea\'s darker, much more violent historical past. She gives moving reflections of the that means of tea in our lives, plus recipes for tea blends that readers can make themselves. In this journey of triumph for impoverished tea laborers, hope for café staff, and insight into the background of tea, Becca sets out to defy the odds and show that really like is the most strong force for transformation on earth.
